A BIG THANK YOU to Quota International of Fairbanks
Quota contributed $500 toward the cost of
Oschaun’s new, bright red hearing aids.
He says, “I like my hearing aids a lot.
I can hear a lot out of them!”
Quota’s generosity is helping Oschaun hear better in the classroom but his mother reports that he is discovering how things REALLY sound at home and in the community as well.
Thank you - Quota - Thank you

Fairbanks students team up for History Day competition
FAIRBANKS — High school sophomores and sixth-graders teamed up last week to take on history. Heather Damario’s 10th-grade class made the walk from West Valley High School to University Park Elementary School to help the younger students with their History Day projects.
History Day is a national competition in which students from a number of grade levels work on history projects based on a certain theme. The theme this year is “Rights and Responsibilities.” Fairbanks History Day Fair will take place this year Feb. 10-13 at Pioneer Park’s Civic Center.
Damario’s 10th-grade class has been participating in History Day for five years. This will be Kim Wallingford’s first year doing the program with her sixth-graders. She got the idea after judging part of last year’s program and then traveling to Washington, D.C. With Damario’s students for the national competition.
Wallingford and Damario had been collaborating on their teaching methods for History Day throughout the year when the two got the idea to bring their collaboration to the next level. Instead of just working together as teachers, the pair decided to bring their classes together as well so Damario’s 10th-graders could help Wallingford’s sixth-graders.Read full article

Drive safe! Student safety is in the driver's hands. Leave the house early enough so you are not rushed. Stay in line while flowing through the parking lot to the "stop, drop, and go" curb. Pull up, as far as possible, while wishing your child a good day. Be cautious as you drive to and from school. Children are precious!
